Simulation of Shock Absorber in Landing Gear

Application ID: 14045


This model simulates the dynamics of the shock absorber used in a landing gear mechanism of an aircraft.

It analyses the stresses, as well as the heat generated in the landing gear components due to the energy dissipated in the shock absorber. A prismatic joint, with spring and damper, is used to model the shock absorber assembly.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
